An air filter change is a part of the regular maintenance job our technicians do each year when you schedule spring maintenance. But an air conditioner needs more than one filter change per year. You’ll need to take care of this task throughout the rest of spring, through the summer, and into the fall.

Spring is a good time to assess your home’s heating in Dunedin, FL—specifically, whether it’s the right time to replace the heater with a new one. You can think over how well the heater worked for you in the past few months, and if you do decide that you want to replace it, you’ll have an excellent opportunity during the slower months of spring to arrange with our HVAC technicians to do the job.

What does allergy season mean? You’ve probably experienced what it feels like—sneezing, congestion, eye and nose irritation. But why does it happen when it does? The reason is that as the weather begins warming up in spring, it increases the bloom of several plants that send pollen into the air, most notably ragweed. Allergy season can be extremely serious in Florida, and it often strikes early because our winter season is short. 

What are the best ways to deal with allergy season in your home? Believe it or not, your local HVAC pros here at the A/C Guy of Tampa Bay have ways to ease your allergy season burdens. We’ll get into more details below.

The New Year is here and our weather is … nice! Pleasant days in the 70s. This is why Tampa is such a popular spot for winter vacations. And during weather like this, it’s easy to forget that you have a heating system in your home that needs regular service to keep it in prime condition. The winter isn’t always sunny days for us—the cold snaps and storms will make an effective home heater a necessity.

So we want to talk to you about maintenance for your heater. Have you had it done already? If you have, great. If you haven’t, we don’t want you to believe that the start of a new year means the opportunity has passed and you might as well forget about it until fall. This isn’t the case at all!

But is there any harm in skipping it for a year? Well, yes. The benefits of heating maintenance are tremendous, and we want to remind you what you can avoid when you stay current with it for each winter.
